HILLARY CLINTON has come out in defence of Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry in the wake of their controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.
She blasted the Royal Family for their "cruel" treatment of Meghan, and praised the Duchess of Sussex for speaking out.
Speaking to BBC Breakfast on Tuesday morning, Mrs Clinton said: "Their cruelty in going after Meghan was just outrageous and the fact she did not get more support, that the reaction was, you know, let's just paper over it and pretend that it didn't happen or it will go away, just keep your head down, well, you know, this young woman was not about to keep her head down, you know, this is 2021."
During the interview, which aired on Sunday night, Meghan opened up about her struggles with mental health, admitting that she contemplated suicide at one point before she and her husband quit royal life last year.
As expected, Markle also talked about the impact the British tabloids had had on her life, while Harry openly admitted that the racism of the media in the UK was one of the driving factors in the couple's emigration to the US.
Perhaps most shockingly, the couple claimed that a member of the Royal Family had expressed concern over how dark their baby Archie might be before he was born.
Neither Harry nor Meghan revealed which member of the family they were referring to, but made sure to stress that it wasn't the Queen or her husband Prince Phillip, who has been guilty of plenty, shall we say, racist faux pas over the years.
